Protein, Diet Choices Can Impact Risk For Type 2 Diabetes

Protein, diet choices can impact risk for Type 2 diabetes

New research shows that eating meat could be increasing your risk of Type 2 diabetes. According to the report, participants who ate more animal protein had elevated chances of diabetes (Type 2) than those who ate vegetable protein for the substantial part of their diet. They did find substituting proteins could help reduce the overall impact of the disease, but substituting more carbohydrates increased risk.

The The Lancet and the International Society of Nephrology have written an editorial arguing for more awareness and prevention in acute kidney disease and chronic kidney disease. The initiative is called ‘0by25’, which aims to to eliminate preventable deaths from acute kidney injury by 2025. A recent editorial argues that there are many alternatives to haemodialysis, and knowledge of these alternatives could help in the global epidemic of CKD and End-Stage Renal Disease.

Chronic kidney disease patients are at risk to experiencing more hospital complications, according to the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN) in a recent press release. These complications or unintended injuries could be avoidable or prevented, especially in those with CKD, and strategies could be implemented to improve patient expereinces.

Many do not understand the demands of hemodialysis and end-stage renal disease, or how life-changing it can be. More importantly, employers do not realize the challenges that those with ESRD face. How can employers help employees, faced with or currently undergoing dialysis, maintain employment? How can employees overcome the hardships of dialysis? KidneyWorks Phase 1, seeks to address these very questions in June.

Heat and climate change could have immediate and long-term health effects, especially those for pre-existing chronic diseases. The Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN) warns that heat exhaution and dehydration could be linked to new cases of chronic kidney disease.
